  1. Reverse Osmosis Desalination
  2. Sea Salts
  3. Aquaculture
  4. Distillation
  5. Freezing
  1. a Dissolved solids that make up about 3.5% of the mass of ocean water. These dissolved solids give the ocean its salty taste.
  2. b A popular method for desalinating ocean water. It includes the use of special membranes that allow water under high pressure to pass through and that block the dissolved salts.
  3. c The raising of aquatic plants and animals for human use or consumption.
  4. d A method of desalination where ocean water is heated to remove salt. Heat causes liquid water to evaporate and leave dissolved salts behind. When the water vapor condenses, the result is pure fresh water.
  5. e A method of desalination where water is frozen. Then the first ice crystals that form do not contain salt. The ice can be removed and melted to obtain fresh water.

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. A measure of the amount of dissolved salts in a given amount of liquid. It can be written as salinity = 35 parts per thousand, or 35%.
  2. Begins at the continental slope and extends to a depth of 4,000 meters.
    animals that live there: octopi, sea stars, and brachiopods.
  3. The bottom region of oceans and bodies of fresh water.
  4. A floating layer of sea ice that completely covers an area of the ocean surface.
  5. Potato-shaped lumps of minerals that are found on the abyssal floor of the ocean.

  4. Neritic ZoneThe area of the pelagic zone above the continental shelves. Has abundant sunlight, moderate temperatures, and relatively low water pressure.

          

  5. Intertidal ZoneThe shallowest benthic zone that lies between the low-tide and high-tide lines.
